Kevin Huizenga was born in 1977 in Harvey, IL and spent most of his childhood in South Holland, IL, near Chicago. He now lives in Minneapolis and teaches comics at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
Huizenga’s comics are at once straight-forward and wide-ranging. His main character is the suburban dweller, Glenn Ganges.
He began drawing comics in high school, xeroxing the first one (with friends) at the neighborhood Jewel Osco in 1993. Since that time he's made many more self-published comic books. He has collected some of these in Drawn and Quarterly’s series OR ELSE and the collection of short stories, CURSES, as well as Fantagraphics series, GANGES, in their Ignatz imprint.
From 2008-2012, Huizenga drew a comic strip called Amazing Facts and Beyond! Leon Beyond in the St. Louis Riverfront Times with Dan Zettwoch. His other blogs are The Balloonist, F (tumblr) and Fight or Run?
